May’s interests lie in investigating complex human behaviour from a
behaviour analytic perspective. Recently, he has explored topics such as
derived relational responding, the application of B.F. Skinner’s Verbal
Behavior (1957) to language intervention, staff training for behaviour
therapists, and the use of mobile technology as part of instruction.
Dr Austin’s research focusses on behaviour analytic applications in schools, especially with regard to teacher education, intervention planning and evaluation for typically developing children with severe behavioural challenges, and behaviour analytic teaching strategies for university students. She is also interested in the application of Schoolwide Positive Behaviour Support in Welsh primary schools, as well as how school-based behaviour analytic interventions can be transferred to home settings.
